Executive Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have put together a soundtrack that not only features some interesting collaborations; it screams from top to bottom with good music. "Mastablasta '98" is a joint venture from Stevie Wonder & Wyclef Jean, "Luv Me, Luv Me" teams Janet Jackson with Shaggy and there's a Soul II Soul reunion with Caron Wheeler and Jazzie B. ("Free Again"). Among the solo artists included on this soundtrack are Mary J. Blige ("Beautiful,") Diana King ("Make My Body Hot") and Maxi Priest (The Art of Seduction").
In keeping with the "island theme" of the film, Jam & Lewis have filled the album out with urban textures and reggae/dancehall vibes. Some of the other notable tracks are by Big Punisher & Beenie Man ("Makes Me Sweat,") K-Ci & JoJo ("Never Say Never Again,") Me'Shell Ndegeocello ("Let Me Have You") and Kevin Ford featuring Rufus Blaq ("Dance For Me.") This soundtrack really encompasses the mood of the film with its sexual, sultry songs and deep urban grooves.
